— Democrats acknowledge that “Logan Square robbery: Video shows 1 of 2 brazen armed robberies of USPS Chicago mail carriers. Chicago shooting injured another mail carrier just minutes before.”
— Democrats acknowledge that “1 robbed at gunpoint near Drake Hotel.”

— Sports promoters believe in the power of sports. What has frustrated/ended your sports efforts? For me it was Osgood-Schlatter Disease (SEE:–conditions/osgood-schlatter-disease-knee-pain/ ) It has stopped me from running since grade school, although, thankfully, not from standing and walking.)
— Democrats say “Pritzker signs new law establishing full-day kindergarten in Illinois.” My outstanding parents sent me to kindergarten at Trinity Lutheran Grade School in Crete ( ) in 1953. Since 1953, my critics/opponents have used that to paint my parents as having been filth rich. To do that, they have ignored the fact that I had to work my way through college. I did yard work 1962-1964. I delivered newspapers 1962-1966. I washed dishes 1964-1966. I cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, and pumped gasoline in 1966. I delivered mail 1966-1969.

— Democrats acknowledge that “Search on for whoever shot, killed U.S. Postal employee in Bronzeville.”

— Government overreach on pregnancy centers – Gerry Bliss, Elk Grove Village
— Democrats ever-increasingly promote vices. Democrats ever-increasingly push pot. Anticipate/expect that soon, if not already, Democrats will also push prostitution.
— Have you filed lawsuits? I have. I should write a book about the bias that I saw in the justice system against those who share Trump’s demographics: conservative, Republican, White, male, older, non-poor, draft-avoider, Protestant, German American, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.

— Democrats say “Illinois GOP’s reaction to the latest Trump indictment runs from outrage to silence.”
— Democrats say “After Trump’s latest indictment, here’s what’s next for Illinois GOP voters.”

— Democrats ask “Should Trump go to jail?” and say “The 2024 election could become a referendum on that question.”

— Democrats acknowledge that “Another night of armed robberies and Chicago cops are again ordered *not* to chase the offenders.”

— The leaders of the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) are ever-increasingly succeeding in driving conservatives out of the IRP, that is, driving platform Republicans out of the IRP, that is, driving Republicans out of the IRP, that is, driving the IRP’s base out of the IRP, that is, destroying the IRP.
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In Illinois, where Democrats control all the top-tier elected seats, the GOP is plagued by intraparty tensions as the right-wing arm of the party has tried to take control of the current leadership. Making it worse: The party has also lost some of its major donors to Florida, including former Gov. Bruce Rauner and billionaire Ken Griffin. That’s put the Illinois GOP in a financial bind, forcing it to get creative in attracting big donors. Earlier this month, for example, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, headlined a fundraiser for the Illinois GOP.)

— Democrats say “Morning roundup.”
— Democrats say “Afternoon roundup.”

— Confronting Systemic Racism – James Edwards
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The system in the United States of America is at war with white people and our families. As stark as it may sound, the cold hard truth is that the central organizing principle of the American system is that white people are unspeakably and incorrigibly evil and must be removed from the face of the Earth as fast as is expediently possible. It breaks down like this: White people are unspeakably evil. No matter what we do or don’t do, whites will always be evil. Our very existence harms non-whites. Therefore, whites must be ignored, denounced, humiliated, handicapped, disadvantaged, punished, and even replaced by non-whites through immigration, with the final goal of eventually removing all white people from the face of the earth through mixing or violence. It can be a struggle to convince our “conservative” friends and family that their own government, media, and institutions really do hate us and consider us the enemy. Most will admit that the government and the media go a bit overboard with the diversity stuff but will deny that it’s all that bad. “Sure, there’s some favoritism toward non-whites in some areas, but to say the system hates white people is over the top.” So, I thought I’d make a list of some questions you can ask to help them see the light. Here are just a few.)
— Air Force Academy Promoting ‘Woke’ Ideology, Including CRT, ‘White Privilege,’ BLM – Paul Craig Roberts
— Why the US Armed Services Cannot Recruit – Paul Craig Roberts

— Democrats ever-increasingly encourage/force children to be sexually active LGBTQers.

— Democrats ask “What Happens When New York’s Shelters Run Out of Room?” and acknowledge that “As migrants sleep on sidewalks outside a Midtown hotel, the city is struggling to avoid a homelessness crisis that resembles those in Los Angeles or San Francisco.” Democrats ever-increasingly promote more illegal immigration.

— Democrats ever-increasingly promote more LGBTQ worldwide.
— Democrats decry that “Border arrests surged in July.”

— Democrats say “‘We kept getting outbid’: Californians moving to Texas explain why they’re changing states.” When Democrats move in, poverty and crime increase.
— Democrats say “Expenses beyond tuition add up. How college students should budget to stretch their money.” If my parents had not provided me with room and board in their Crete home while I took classes at UIC 1966-1968, weekends during my first semester at NIU in 1969, and the summer of 1969, I would not have been able to graduate debt-free from NIU in 1970 owning a 1969 Dodge Charger SE.

— This Trump Indictment Imperils the Presidency. His conduct is hard to defend, but a conviction for fraud would set a dangerous precedent. – David B. Rivkin Jr. and Lee A. Casey
— Trump Campaign Looks Like a Defense Fund. He says his goal is election, but his spending reports suggest it’s acquittal. – Karl Rove
— I should write a book about my critics/opponents in Wheaton, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and Illinois who have used my not being a member of a church, my not attending church services, and my not giving money to a church against me the most. I would focus the aforesaid who do the aforesaid, but who destroy those like me a) who they cannot manipulate or dominate, b) who refuse to glorify and praise them, c) who refuse to pander to them, d) who refuse to serve as one of their operatives or dupes, e) who refuse to cover up their wrongdoing, and/or f) who refuse to give them money. I would focus on the aforesaid who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout.
— FRONT PAGE: ‘How Do I Do That?’ The New Hires of 2023 Are Unprepared for Work – Douglas Belkin, Ben Chapman, Ben Kesling (COMMENT: When the nasty writer of Money Magazine’s February 1978 4-page hit piece on me asked me why I had accepted Oldsmobile’s job offer in 1971, I answered that my Retail Sales Manager Firestone Store job was wasting what I had learned earning a bachelor’s degree in management from NIU in 1970. She did not include that in her article but instead, she wrote that I did not like having to work more than 40 hours a week.)

— Democrats ask “Can class-based preferences solve our country’s equity issues?” From what I see, your parents’ education, income, religion, and national origin determine your class. To paint me as being low class, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always stressed a) that neither of my parents attended college, b) that my father was only the first of my ancestors to earn a high school diploma, c) that my mother never attended high school, d) that my father never earned more than $50,000/year in today’s dollars, e) that he worked in the office of a nasty chemical plant, f) that he almost always worked second jobs to pay the family’s bills, g) that because of the aforesaid, I had to work my way through college, h) that my parents were Missouri Synod Lutherans and raised me as one, i) that my parents were 100% German American, j) that I only just barely made it into upper 20% of my high school class, k) that my ACT score was only 24, l) that none of my degrees are from Ivy League universities, m) that I was a union member for almost 12 years, n) that I was a federal employee for almost 30 years, o) that the federal government never promoted me beyond GS-13 Step 10, currently only $142,650/year, p) that the federal government forced me to take its early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old, q) that many high class people in Wheaton, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois have taken many big adverse actions against me, actions that they would never had taken if I shared their religion or their national origin.

— Democrats crow that “J. B. Pritzker Is a New Democratic Power Broker He is rich and powerful, making him both an ally to Joe Biden and his own center of influence.”

— DeSantis agrees to debate Newsom on Fox News

— Democrats say “Defining ‘First Generation’ in Different Ways.” I was a first generation student. Neither of my parents attended college. My father was the first of my ancestors who earned a high school diploma. My mother never attended high school. What if Affirmative Action had only been for first generation students?

— Democrats say “Harvard Overhauls College Application in Wake of Affirmative Action Decision.” I have always believed in full disclosure. Knowing the bias against those who share my demographics, in my application to be selected to fill the Wheaton City Council West District vacancy in 2019, I purposely hinted/implied/argued/shouted in that application that I was conservative, Republican, White, male, old (born in 1948), draft-avoider, Missouri Synod Lutheran, and 100% German American, that my ancestors had been in America since 1844, that I had lived in Wheaton only since 1978, that I had lived in Wheaton’s West District only since 1984, that I had lived in Crete 1948-1972, that I had helped stop Wheaton from installing a traffic signal at Harrison and President, that I had sued Wheaton’s most successful and powerful developer, that I had sued Wheaton, that I had helped stop Wheaton’s efforts to legalize video gambling and selling pot, that I had led a group that succeeded in forcing Wheaton to force Comcast to carry Fox News Channel in 2001, that I had served on Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee 2003-2011, that I had been the Republican fundraiser for Wheaton Independence Day parades and fireworks since 2005, that I had been a Republican Precinct Committeeman since 1999, that I had been the GOPUSA Illinois Editor since 2000, that I organized Wheaton’s 2003 and 2004 9/11 events, etc.
